We did not attend the festival but went down a couple of days early to avoid the crowds. Porterville is definetly in dairy country!

The new display area is very comfortable with rows of raised beds about 6' by 50' with 6 ' wide grass walkways. I doubt there was any grass left after 7 - 10,000 people went through on the weekend. The iris are grouped by Rebloomers,Space age,TB's, medians and Seedlings!

The attached picture shows part of one field in bloom to greet the visitors.

Porterville must be a good place to grow iris. I read in Tall Talk that Jim Gibson and Bill Schortman grew many a fine iris there. Must be all those happy California Cows. <BG>
